Above: An iconic Erie image
I’d like to share some thought from the “Inside Erie” column written by Erie Times-News columnist Pat Howard– and read by myself and many other Erie natives who no longer live there.
He writes this week about something I’ve observed a number of times – folks from Erie (and a number of other Rust Belt communities) can be pretty negative about their hometowns. And it sometimes seems that the loudest complainers are those who’ve never left.
But people who have lived elsewhere (i.e. Erie natives who’ve lived in California and then returned to Erie) can have a better perspective on what’s positive about their town.
Read what he has to say and see if you agree.
